Tim Wallach (born September 14, 1957 in Huntington Park, California), nicknamed "Eli", is a former third baseman in Major League Baseball who played from 1980 to 1996. He won three Gold Glove awards for defensive excellence and 2 Silver Slugger awards for offensive excellence. Wallach spent the majority of his career with the Montreal Expos, forming a potent lineup with teammates Tim Raines, Gary Carter, and Andre Dawson. Bill James has referred to Wallach as a "poor man's Brooks Robinson," largely because of his defensive skills (James 2001). In 2004, Tim became the batting coach of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
In college at Cal State Fullerton, Wallach won the award for best college player, the Golden Spikes Award.
In 8099 career at bats, Wallach had 2085 hits. He batted .257 with 216 home runs and 1125 RBIs. Wallach had 908 career runs scored.
